20mph consultation

This article was published in 2013, in Newsletter 108.

A public consultation on the first phase, which would cover north Cambridge, of a citywide 20mph speed limit has just started. A letter plus questionnaire has been sent to every address in Arbury, King’s Hedges, West Chesterton and East Chesterton, asking for residents’ views. The survey will also consider whether thoroughfares such as Gilbert Road, Arbury Road, Green End Road and Chesterton High Street should be included in the scheme.

There will be exhibitions from 29 May to 1 July at Arbury Community Centre in Campkin Road and Mandela House in Regent Street, plus two drop-in events at Arbury Community Centre, between 10am and 4pm on Saturday, 15 June, and 4pm and 8pm on Wednesday, 19 June.
